New website

Hello Everybody! ^___^

If you have been looking for LoveFighters.com website during last months you probably found the website underconstruction.

Even it has been running from december, today I delight to introduce to all of you my new website:

www.esthermolina.net

It took me a while to build this new website together with my webmaster, photographer, adviser and wonderful friend Jessica Soto.

It was painful, very painful, to change the name of my website. But after talking and taking advice from several professional illustratrors and graphic designers, I follow their advice to use my name instead of a brand name.

It felt sad and it was difficult to change it because what the name Love Fighters means to me. I was at despair and in a very difficult situation, surrounded by problems in all the areas in my life when I decided, raising from the ashes of my soul, to turn the ying yang upside down. I got all that unbearable pain running through my veins and turn it into art. Art and love are the only things that can save our life. It help me a lot at that time. It gave strength, hope and meaning to my life. It resurrected me.

But now, luckily, I am in a veeery different situation. I made a path of decisions and actions that made my life truly happy. Things are wonderful and I enjoy every single day, every single moment. So, I had to let go the brand name, for good.

So, new name means new logo. It took me 5 months to create a perfect logo. Hundreds of papers with sketches and tests. Many logo ideas and designs. Crazy ones, lovely ones, funny ones… The last one I made was the perfect one. It turns to be a different version of the first one XD

I hope you guys like my new website. World, here I am!!! \(^o^)/

Hello Everybody!!!

Hello everybody! Welcome to my new website!(before it was www.lovefighters.com)

My name is Esther Molina, I’m from Barcelona and I’ve been living in Japan since 2004. After travelling to japan for holidays a few times I decided to leave my life in Spain and live in Japan.  I’m happy to say that even though this was not easy, it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

I love to paint with watercolors, write, take macro pictures, go for long walks and feel the nature around me. I adore trees and leaves, the ocean and lighthouses and taking relaxing baths with aroma oils.  I really like dolphins and my dream is to swim with them someday. I get a lot of fun out of cooking recipes from different countries, sitting for hours chatting with friends in a cafe enjoying the best cappuccino and traveling to charming places. Lastly, my secret obsession…I am a stationary freak.  It’s a serious condition for me… ha, ha, ha! XD

Ever since childhood, I have loved drawing and playing with color.  I’ve never been able to control my desire for mixing colors and I decided it was finally time to share my creations ^___^.  My first exhibition in Tokyo was in 2011.  You can see some of these paintings on my personal blog: www.theunrealworld.net.

I studied IT and graphic design in Barcelona. I work as an announcer, reporter and illustrator at NHK World Radio Japan. I have opened a shop in Etsy.  You can find my artwork there; these include cards, paintings and photographs.  I hope you will enjoy my work, perhaps it will inspire you, most of all I hope it will make you smile!

With love,
Esther
